‘Net Zero’ is a phrase that you will have heard a lot of by now. The Welsh Government target is that by 2030 the public sector will be net carbon zero, and many big corporates have set similar targets. This will have a huge impact on SME businesses, whether they know it or not.
Getting to net zero in the future requires action now so that you don’t fall behind. Starting your net zero journey can seem daunting, but we are here to support your journey.
At this event as we focus on why this should be a priority for all businesses, the benefits of reducing your carbon footprint, and how it can boost your business as well as helping towards national and global net zero goals.
We are joined by a panel of experts and will discuss following:
- Supply chain from a net zero perspective
- Carbon as a customer driver
- How reducing your carbon output can help with employee retention
